Can anyone recommend a place for getting my kitchen knives sharpened? Many thanks.

Look in Chelsea Market (yes, it is overrun with tourists) where the cookware store has a knife sharpening area. I read something
recently where they were saying home cooks are now their biggest business. It's called Bowery Kitchen Supply and is terrific.

Have you tried doing them yourself? A steel, and a stone, and your on your way

Korin
57 Warren Street in Tribeca

it's a knife shop, on the surface, but they have a great sharpening service for all brands. not cheap -- it's a flat per knife charge, no matter how many you bring in, but they do it really well.

If all else fails there's a guy who sets up under the rail bridge on Broadway around 45th Ave - no idea how good he is.

I second Margery at Samurai sharpening, who is located at the front of Bowery Kitchen Supply at the Chelsea Market.  She is the best!

I second Henry Westpfal. Really great service. However, in my experience, they do not do the sharpening while you wait. What has your experience been @toque198? Probably best to call to confirm if you don't want to make two trips or be without your knives for a few days. ;)

That's an acquired skill set and I'd rather not learn on my knives. I bit the bullet and bought an electric 3 stage sharpener, which is adaptable for either European angled or Asian angled blade edges. It even did a great job on my cheap Canal Street Chinese cleaver!

Sent a message to ProChef. maybe he'd set up during the Farmer's Market! Otherwise, I'd vote for Henry Westfal.
